Precious

In the face of this beautiful woman you can see lines of grief, determination, and quiet joy.  She is holding her grandson Precious who was born on the day her daughter died.  Her daughter delivered Precious and then as she lay back to embrace her new son she began to bleed.  The bleeding continued despite efforts of those with her to slow it down.  Her life washed away in a sea of red. Her mother clung to her newborn grandson and gave him a name from her heart.  She worried about her ability to keep him alive and well, without breast milk and without money for formula.  Within the week after telling countless people her story, she was directed to Joyful Motherhood for support.  Precious is now 8 months old.
